Ryther’s targeted assessments for adolescent substance use disorders fulfill school and legally-based requirements for alcohol and drug assessments. Performed by Chemical Dependency Specialists and master’s level clinicians with training in substance use disorders and mental health, the assessment includes a urine toxicology screen. Assessments are offered at our Seattle and Bellevue locations.
Individualized counseling is provided by a Chemical Dependency Professional experienced working with teens. Substance abuse and addiction for adolescents present unique challenges requiring a special emphasis through counseling on the development of refusal skills, examination of life choices and consequences, along with education based on the latest information about the impact of drugs on the developing brain. Ryther’s program meets all requirements for Level I chemical dependency treatment. This program is offered at both the Seattle and Bellevue locations.
Our program is for adolescents and young adults with substance use and mental health issues. It is designed based on the latest research to identify and treat mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety or ADHD in adolescents with substance use. Treatment is guided by an adolescent psychiatrist and licensed clinicians experienced in addressing mental health and substance use issues. Our program is individualized and varies in length to achieve client goals. Ongoing monitoring includes urine toxicology. This program is offered at the Seattle location.
Ryther’s Seven Challenges group meets Mondays 5:30-7:00pm on Ryther’s main campus. The group is available to Ryther clients enrolled in Co-occurring or Substance Use Disorders services. Designed to meet teens where they’re at in the process of change, Seven Challenges is an evidence-based treatment approach for teens with substance-related problems and co-occurring disorders. In this group, we use journals, experiential activities, and discussion to encourage teens to honestly evaluate their life and choices, explore the pros and cons of substance use, develop problem recognition skills, and create effective long-term plans.
